The Rhode Island Psychological Association Ethics Committee
(Click on name for further information)
Leslie A. Feil, Ph.D., Chair
Jennifer Anthony, Ph.D.
The RIPA Ethics Committee serves an educational function for the membership in matters of ethical conduct of psychologists, along with serving an educational function for the general public with regards to ethical conduct of psychologists.
To access a consultation from the Ethics Committee, an individual calls Jack Hutson, RIPA Executive Director (401-732-2400), who will make a referral to the on-call Ethics committee member. Consultations can also be accessed through the RIPA Ethics Chair Leslie Feil (401-247-1171), who will facilitate referral to the on-call member. After discussing the ethics situation with the caller, the on-call Ethics member will consult with the Ethics Committee members and then offer a response to the caller. Caller identity is kept confidential, and specific identifying information is not sought.
The RIPA Ethics Committee is researching changing ethical guidelines, related to technology and practice of "telepsychology," in order to provide resources for our members in this evolving field. Recent RIPA CE workshops by Steven Behnke (APA Ethics Director) and Eric Harris (of APAIT) have provided a basis for our information.
